An Idol Turns into a Witness

Recommended Posts

People who have read the above tale will realize how the Indian society in the past was firmly gripped by casteism/racism. Even among the Brahmins, some were considered high and some low.

Remember, Chandu dusht had pride in him, as he belonged to a higher order of Khatris than the Sodhis.

Bhaaji it is not more so about casteism rather fundamentally about the power of devotional love and tremendous faith in idol as omnipresent God, not just stone thing. As a result, the God came after his devotee to testify in a worldly and mundane matter.

Obviously bro, the main motif of this tale is about devotion and love, but one can learn many things from a single tale. Casteism also stands out in this tale.

If a so-called higher order Brahmin can treat a so-called lower order Brahmin in this way, how would such a person treat a Shudar (lowest group in the caste system)? Just imagine how much discrimination was present in the society at that time. 

 

Bhul chuk maaf
